The difference between a 22-yard match and a net session or practice is stark. The excitement of the match, the pressure, the opponent, the surroundings, everything is different. Chandika Hathurusingha has no reason not to know that. Therefore, the head coach of Bangladesh wants to get an idea from the match of Rony Talukder, Shamim Hossain and Touhid Hriday, Tanveer Islam, who have returned to the T20 team.
However, before the last match of the ODI series, Hathurusinghe saw a glimpse of the cricketers in the T20 team. The coach also spoke to them separately during the practice session last Sunday in Chittagong. He got more time and a better look at Wednesday’s practice.
Hathurusinghe has seen one of them, Roni Talukdar, before. The batsman played the only international match of his career so far in his first term in charge. He saw that Roni again, he saw others too.
